Hi my name is Magda,
based in Struisbaai which is next to L’Augulhas; the most southern tip of Africa. My husband, John, and I intermittently travel through our beautiful country where I spent countless joyful hours awaiting an opportunity to get the perfect shot.
Creative portrait photography is a skill that unexpectedly carved its way into my work. I believe that the best creative portrait photography is born out of profound attention to detail which in the end produces stunning works of art. I enjoy working with professionals like make-up artists and stylists. I frequently combine unique locations with characters, costumes, props and other elements to produce magical results that is able to stand the test of time. I love to transform ideas, dreams or fantasies into amazing works of art.
The attributes in people that others sometimes shy away from, becomes a look into the souls of people and it naturally attracts me. These manifests as honesty, aspiration, dreams, wrinkles, age, and vulnerability. People, nature, animals and clouds are examples of my inspirations.
I love how photography makes me see this world, as beautiful as it is or as we imagine it to be.
“Dit was 'n fees om met Magda te werk. Sy is so spontaan en het ons lekker op ons gemak laat voel. Ons foto's het ook pragtig gekom! Sal weer van haar dienste wil gebruik maak.”
